Kindergarten provides children with the opportunity to learn and practice the essential social, emotional, and problem-solving skills that they will need throughout their lives. This is where core cognitive skills are developed and the primary skills required for reading, counting, and social interaction are put in place.
With Open Space Learning Classrooms, we help our kindergarten learners to amplify the learning experience. Children do not simply sit around and learn things, but they build and learn from hands-on experience.
Our kindergarten learners are encouraged in their natural curiosity and creativity. Problem-Based Learning provides for big guiding questions which the learner then is allowed to explore as they seek understanding. The role of the Learning Leader is to help and guide the learners to find answers to their questions. This may involve the learner seeking information directly from parents and community members. It can produce outcomes like posters, songs, dances, presentations, experiments, and more.
Another key of Problem-Based Learning is that all learning is connected to the real world. Kindergarten learners respond to inquiries about their world, and in doing so they are able to immediately apply learning to their situations. By framing questions about the real world, we provide learners with integrated subject information. Literacy and numeracy are not discrete subjects but are incorporated naturally together in solving problems.
As the only Kindergarten school in Gurgaon to follow Problem-Based Learning, our learners develop a foundation in critical thinking and problem solving from an early age. As they progress through kindergarten and beyond, learners are well-positioned for academic success. By consistently asking open ended questions and making the learning child-centric, our Learning Leaders create self-motivated and creative learners. Kindergarten is the place to begin building the foundation for learners to be encouraged in their curiosity and to have the skills to follow their own lines of inquiry.
What’s more, our kindergarten learners develop more than just academics. Our Vega Values are incorporated into our lessons so learners begin to understand larger concepts of social responsibility and their role in society. They become more self-aware and learn to work collaboratively. Learners are encouraged to apply their learning to have a positive impact on their surroundings. As kindergarten learners, their focus is generally on their small circle of family, friends, and community workers.
The outcomes for even these young kindergarten learners include public speaking and presentation skills. Learners take ownership of their learning and have opportunities at our Student Led Conferences to share what they have learned in front of family, learning leaders and peers.
Vega Schools, rated one of the top innovative schools in India and one of the best CBSE schools in Gurgaon, provides the ideal environment for your kindergarten child.
Our Kindergarten school curriculum of Numeracy enables our learners to gain the ability to use numbers and solve problems in real life. It means having the confidence and skill to use numbers and mathematical approaches in all aspects of life.
In Kindergarten, literacy instruction prepares learners to learn to read letters. Our Pedagogical practices include activities and experiences for all domains of development such as cognitive, socio-emotional, language and literacy, physical-motor and creative and aesthetic which are interlinked.
Our Kindergarten project is inquiry based, investigation or in-depth study of a topic or theme, usually done by small groups within a class, an entire class or sometimes by individual children. The learning leaders offer some open-ended triggers and then observe the learners, listen to their stories, their questions, see how they navigate the activity, take note of their interest levels and talk with the learners.
Our Kindergarten project has dedicated extra-curricular activities for young learners with the sole aim to help learners learn about themselves and mould their skills and knowledge to their maximum potential. With the variety of materials on offer to them, the learning leaders encourage engagement in activities and go deeper to make their learning visible through modeling or building, collage or drawing, dramatic play or music; any means at all.
Me to us
This kindergarten project empowered learners to take initiative and become responsible at a young age. It encouraged them to become creative thinkers and caring individuals. Through this project, they understood the different ways in which they can take care of their basic needs, belongings and the people around them. They also learned about the initial steps they needed to take to lead a healthy life. Learners developed sensitivity towards animals and plants and understood their importance in our lives. They created organisers for personal use or gifting (made using waste materials, keeping in mind the 3Rs), binoculars and sensory trays, made their own ‘Daily Routine Charts’, family trees and did a role play based on the concepts learned. This project helped learners realise that caring for themselves and the well-being of others, will not only make them happy but also contribute to making their immediate environment a happier one.
Me the explorer
This project aimed to nurture our kindergarten learners’ natural curiosity. Throughout, they were encouraged to ask any questions which came to mind, followed by engaging activities, experiments and exploration in order to find answers to their own questions. During this process they learned that humans require certain basic things to survive, which are called ‘basic needs’, and that travelling could also be considered a basic human need. They also realised that in order to meet these needs most people needed to work and earn money, while others (‘self-producers’) grew, made, and built things that helped them meet their own needs. Through this kindergarten project learners also understood the importance of experimentation and its applications and how to use their knowledge to make their own tools. They created their own travel logs, made ‘craft suitcases’ using 3D shapes and clothes for their fictional ‘travel buddies’ made using different textures/materials. They created instruments such as spectrometers and pan flutes, and did experiments to test sound. This gave learners an opportunity to explore things around them, express themselves and learn the art of asking meaningful questions.
